Pecan French Toast

Breakfast is a popular meal in our house.  Requests vary from savory items, such as cheesy grits or omelets, to sweet items, such as cinnamon rolls and scones.  The amount of time available to make breakfast also helps to determine what will be made.

Any Day Pancakes

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 30th, 2009| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes
Although the most frequently requested breakfast in our house is a batch of scones, the schedule of my mornings doesn't allow for that on weekdays or busy weekends.  However, I always have time to make homemade pancakes.

This pancake recipe is so simple you never will need to buy boxed

Leftover St. Pat’s Hash

Most of my family likes corned beef.  So, when I purchase it for our St. Patrick's Day dinner, I purchase more than will be eaten at that meal.  Depending on the amount we have left, it can be used to make sandwiches or hash or just eaten plain.

Lazy Day Cinnamon Rolls

Last weekend, we had a quiet Sunday morning.  Although we were having a few friends over for the Super Bowl later in the afternoon, we had nothing scheduled until then.  We had done all of the necessary shopping on Saturday and the prep work for the party didn't need to

Many Minis

It dawned on me this morning that ours is a household of minis.  In addition to our vehicles (a minivan and a Mini), there are other minis.  My husband and I are both foodies, and thus, a couple of our children are mini-foodies.  They love to cook and critique new

Banana-Berry Smoothie

I have to confess that I have a slight bit of an addiction to. . . smoothies.  If you had told me a few years ago that my daily breakfast would be a smoothie, I would have laughed.  Not that I ate big breakfasts, but a bowl of cereal usually

Splatterless Bacon

All of my children and my husband love bacon.  So, for a lazy weekend breakfast or a summer burger barbecue, there is often the request to have bacon with the meal.

However, the mess from cooking bacon on stovetop (even when using a lid or a splatter shield) often makes me

Never Buy Them Again Bagels

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 18th, 2008| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes
I have enjoyed baking since my childhood.  As a teenager, I baked cookies, brownies, and pies.  I would cut recipes out of magazines to try at a future date.  This love for baking grew into a love for cooking all dishes.  Still, there are dishes that I have yet to

Two-Cheese Baked Grits

For many people a weekend morning without plans is the perfect occasion for sleeping late.  For me, it is the perfect time for a big, homemade breakfast.  At our house, the kids often request my cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip scones, pancakes, or waffles.  However, if the kids aren't

French Toast with Apples and Cheese

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 15th, 2008| Breakfast Dishes, Main Dishes, Recipes
As I mentioned in a previous post, we took a trip to Whole Foods the other weekend.  Both my fiance and I enjoy a wide variety of cheeses and were not disappointed with the cheese counter at that store.  Perusing the selection, I noticed some wedges of Wensleydale with cranberries.

With busy schedules for everyone, it can be hard to get together after work to celebrate a birthday. Therefore, a plan was made to meet for breakfast before work. Living where we do, Mother Nature was not kind to our plans. Instead of going to breakfast, each of us was

Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

With the holiday season upon us, many of us let our good eating habits fall by the wayside. There are temptations everywhere you cookies, eggnog, fried latkes.

To balance these tasty munchies, I try to make meals using more healthy recipes. Quite often I do that by having a high
